I was hoping to find out better ways to post images with a bit more insight as to why some photos do better and also how to build up your account with followers too. As a teacher he was very good.

Really enjoyed the class - I would have liked for him to actually go through a sample of uploading an Instagram photo from beginning to end. And also showing all the settings live.

I felt that this class was a great for the money. In my opinion, it could have been slightly longer, we were a little rushed at the end.

I really enjoyed this class for leisure learning. I knew a lot of what was discussed, but this is definitely a great class for beginners or those who aren't so social media savvy. The teacher was also great! He definitely gave us a few laughs while also giving us a relaxed and fun environment.

The class was a bit more advanced than I was capable to understand. The instructor knew is stuff and was filled with ideas and suggestions and very helpful. However I have been energized by it and have moved forward with changing my phone from an android to an iPhone which will help get closer to understanding instagram and how it works etc. So actually I like to add another star making it 4 out of 5.....after all nothing is perfect! My favorite saying is "Progress not perfection"

Teacher was very knowledgable about Instagram, covered a lot of informative things and was very receptive to all questions. I would definitely recommend this class for anyone who is just getting familiar with Instagram, as well as those trying to get a grasp on how to use it in a business sense.
